What is Energy Healing?

Energy Healing works with the body’s energy systems to facilitate or enhance the body’s natural ability to heal. Trauma, stress, limiting or false belief systems, emotional or physical distress, and other blocks to our well-being, if not fully resolved, are often stored in the energy fields of our bodies. These blocks can hinder our ability to heal physically, mentally and emotionally and as result prevent us from fully experiencing our divine potential: love, joy, peace, and abundance.

How is Energy Healing Possible?

Science tells us that everything in this universe is made up of energy. Energy is the building block of all matter. It shows up in different forms and shapes – you, me, a cat, a chair, a train, planet earth, the universe, etc. We are all made of the same stuff – energy. It is constantly flowing, changing form all the time, permeating everything.

We are energy and the space (air) between us is energy, so we are all connected. We are essentially all in one big ocean of energy.

Energy is also responsive to thought, feelings and intentions.

Healers channel Divine Source energy (life force energy, Chi, Divine Love, etc.) to a client by activating the healing energy with focused intention. At these times (thanks to understandings made known by quantum physics) a healer is operating outside of the normal limitations of time and space. This allows the healer to transmit healing energy to a person or animal whether in person or located thousands of miles away.  This is why it is as equally effective to have hands-on Reiki as it is to have Distance Reiki (i.e. Distance Energy Healing).

According to the The International Center for Reiki Training,Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.”

How Will I Feel After an Energy Healing Session?

Your experience will be unique to you. However, most report:

  • Heightened energy and a feeling of well being
  • Feeling “lighter’ and more optimistic
  • Greater clarity and an ability to get things done

If deeper issues are worked on, you might also experience:

Low Energy or Fatigue – You may have spent years suppressing your true feelings and past events. Therefore, you might feel a temporary low as your body assimilates the release of the blocked energy and integrates the new ideal energy of Divine Love.

Feeling Very Emotional – You may experience sudden waves of emotions that you previously suppressed. Feelings of anger, sadness, anxiety, or fear may bubble to the surface. Resist the urge to ignore or stuff these feelings down. Instead, allow them the to space to simple just be. You might even say to the feeling, “I hear you.” Thank the feeling for trying to protect you and then allow it to drain away.

Vivid dreams – this is your psyche’s way of processing the healing. Consider keeping a journal of your dreams. Your dreams often provide valuable information that can further your healing process.

Post Energy Healing Session Tips

  • Drink Water: As blocked energy is cleansed, cleared and released, it may release mild toxins in the body. To avoid feeling achy or run down, it is highly recommend that you drink plenty of water immediately following a session and for the next 12-24 hours.
  • Take an Epsom Salt Bath:  Detoxifying your body by bathing is an ancient remedy. A detox bath is thought to assist your body in eliminating toxins as well as absorbing the minerals and nutrients that are in the water. Click here to learn How to Take a Detox Bath.
  • Practice Extreme Self-Care – Following an energy healing session, if “stuff” comes up for you, it is very important to pamper yourself, or as Cheryl Richardson likes to call it to practice “extreme self-care.”  Journal, take a walk, do some yoga, listen to guided meditations, get a massage, pat your dog or sit with your cat (animals are natural healers), etc.

Signs that Energy Healing is Working

The results of an energy healing session can be quite dramatic. Aches and pains disappear, debilitating fears melt away never to be felt again, and new positive behaviors are suddenly easy to implement and stick with. Other times the shifts are subtle or occur gradually.

Remember healing is very much a co-creation between your higher self and Divine Source Energy. Some individuals are open and receptive to having miracles occur in the lives. While others, on a subconscious level, are more comfortable with a gradual integration and transformation.

In all cases some form of HEALING HAS OCURED. It’s important to look for and recognized both the obvious results as well as the more subtle shifts.

The subtle shifts are:

  • You suddenly feel inspired to take action (even a baby step) in a new direction, after days, weeks, or months of feeling indecisive or unmotivated.
  • Your days are now filled with a general sense of well-being and optimism.
  • The intensity of your “negative” feelings (anger, sadness, disappointment, anxiety, etc.) have significantly softened or lessened.
  • Wonderful synchronicities are suddenly happening in your life. The right people, experiences, and opportunities are suddenly, effortlessly appearing.
